We lived in Spain for a couple of years and got used to the meal/snack schedule - desayuno -light breakfast, almuerzo-lunch around 11, comida-main meal at 2-3, merienda-snack (dinner for little kids) at 5-6, cena-supper at 9-10. In all the reading here that I have done, it seems that people are eating their big meal at night? Could that be so? When people speak of lunch and dinner on the threads, what do they mean? When do people eat their last meal, and what kind do the albergues or hostels serve? Do people stop at 1-2 to eat the main meal, and stay stopped? Or do they rest for 2-3 hours and then continue on? Or do they just eat a light lunch and then walk on to a main meal later in the day than the Spanish would do? Thanks for responding!
